API security testing is the key focus of this Parasoft release and shifts security testing into developer workflows for an API testing strategy that spans from development through test to AppSec. The API testing platform extends penetration testing and offers a new level of visibility by combining Parasoft SOAtest’s seamless dynamic application security testing (DAST) and smart test generation with OWASP ZAP to identify security vulnerabilities in APIs.
